Gideon Sundbäck (April 24, 1880 – June 21, 1954)
Google is honoring Gideon for his invention....the zipper. Check out the zipper doodle on Google's home page.

What a great invention....unless you had a similar experience as Ben Stiller in the movie There's Something About Mary.
Scary, painful...but funny
There's Something About Mary: short, funny scene. - YouTube
